Beltran, who hasn't played since Tuesday, recently decided he would wait until the offseason to have surgery to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.
"[The elbow is] feeling better every day," Eveland said. "I hate to leave here, because I do feel like, you know, maybe in another week or so I'd probably be able to pitch again."
Eveland had a 2.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings in 30 appearances for the Mets.
"He's all right. He's a catcher," Melvin said.
Norris went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout Sunday at Seattle and is batting just .238 (39 for 164) with two home runs since the All-Star break.
"He took one off the mask earlier in the day, but at the time, he didn't show the reaction that is normally associated with someone that's been concussed," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He kind of went about his business. And it wasn't until he actually went to hit his last plate appearance that someone said to me that he didn't seem right on the bench."
Avila struck out on three pitches and, when questioned upon his return to the dugout, complained of a headache. He went 1 for 3 with a walk and two strikeouts in the contest.
Avila traveled with the team to Minnesota after the game, but Ausmus told mLive.com he likely wouldn't play Monday against the Twins.
"He's fine. He got called away from this game," manager John Farrell said. "There was a family emergency that he had to attend to and he jumped on a flight late this afternoon."
Farrell added that Ortiz should rejoin the team Tuesday at Pittsburgh.
His status going forward is unknown. He'll have an MRI on Monday.
"This is a young player where we had something going, missed a couple of months and all those are reasons for us to once again pause and just kind of take our time, make sure everything looks right before moving forward," Matheny said.
Wacha has made two starts in September after missing all of July and August with a stress fracture in his right shoulder.
Reynolds entered the game mired in a 4-for-44 (.091) slump, causing manager Ron Roenicke to split first base between rookie Matt Clark and usual catcher Jonathan Lucroy in recent days.
"We know he's a streaky guy; we know that he needs to be out there playing to get it back," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Saturday. "We're in a situation where we have to make some decisions and try to play the hottest guy. That's what I've been doing."
After yielding the spot to catcher Jonathan Lucroy the previous two days,
Clark, 27, spent last season in Japan before returning to hit .304 with 26 homers and a .924 OPS in 414 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A this year. Manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com he'll continue to find at-bats for him as long as he continues to produce.
"That's why we brought him up here, was with the idea that if the matchups were good and he did well, I'd be able to put him back out there," Roenicke said prior to Sunday's game. "With him continuing to swing the bat well, he's going to play a little bit more."
